IMS led 39-10 at the half on the strength of 70 percent shooting from the field and then scored the first six points of the third quarter to lead 45-10 three minutes in, and start the continuous clock.
IMS was led by Cameron Gingerich with 19 points and Thompson scored 15 points. Gingerich also garnered four rebounds, three assists and three steals and Thompson had four assists and three boards. Dallas Nye scored eight points and grabbed seven rebounds, and Reggie Hostetler had six points and seven boards. Justin Boller tallied four steals and five points, Joel Shetler had five rebounds and four points, and Zach Hill added four points to round out the scoring.
Coach Dwight Gingerich said “our defensive intensity was much better early and we moved the ball well and were able to get good shots against Waco’s match-up zone. We received strong play off the bench from Joel, Zach, and Tanner, and that really helped our team.”
IMS goes to 11-2 on the season and next plays at Columbus Friday.
